good morning. breaking news. a crowded commuter train has crashed into a station in new jersey. reports of serious injuries. interviewed by police overnight. the teenager now being linked to the murder of his own father as a community honors the heroes who prevented an even bigger tragedy. they put their lives on the line to protect them. >> the results are in. our new post-debate poll shows the majority of voters think hillary clinton won as sources
7:01 am
more the next one, possibly bringing in a debate consultant. their next showdown in nine days. and he's back. former football star tim tebow hits a home run on his very first pitch in professional baseball, sparking a brand new wave of tebow mania today, thursday, september 29th, 2016. with matt lauer and savannah guthrie live from studio 1a in rockefeller plaza. >> and good morning, everybody. welcome to "today." 7:00 a.m. on the west coast on a thursday. it's commuter time, rush hour here in new york city. we've learned there's a commuter train in new jersey that crashed into the platform. this is right across the river from manhattan, new york city. >> it's about 2 1/2 miles from where we are. that train went through the end of the tracks right into the
7:02 am
a pretty high rate of speed. nbc's rehema ellis is there. what can you tell us? >> what i can tell you is that emergency vehicles are still rushing to the scene. most of the streets in the area have been blocked off. i've been diverted around the exact entrance to the train, so i'm walking as we speak to try and get a better view of the damage. its way into the hoboken station. eyewitnesses have said what happened is that the train simply did not stop. it kept going and ran into the end of the platform and right into the reception area. we do not know at this point exactly how fast was this train going. we don't know how many passengers were on board the train or how many passengers were standing in the waiting area. but as you can imagine, this was
7:03 am
jersey. so there had to be a lot of people. the question now becomes, one, the extent of the injuries, beyond the damage. authorities are calling this a mass casualty incident, but we do not know yet whether everyone has been taken off of that train and whether all of the passengers who were inside waiting area, in the train reception area, have been removed from that area. as you point out, there's been extensive damage of the area and what they're trying to do right now is assess the extent of the damage and the extent of the injuries. a number of people who may have been injured. matt? >> rehema, thank you very much. >> let's talk to somebody who was on the train at the time. on the second train car when it crashed. he joins us on the phone. sir, first of all, we're so glad you're okay and able to speak to us. can you tell us what you saw and what you experienced?
7:04 am
been trying to slow before the impact? >> no. hi. it didn't slow down. it was at the usual speed. no one was looking out. everyone was doing their thing. next thing you know, we're plowing into the platform. >> can you hear us? >> i can. if you can do me a favor, try to shield the phone a little bit. we're getting a lot of wind noise. >> yeah, i'm sorry. >> and so how fast would you say the train was traveling? >> it was at its normal speed. the train doesn't go that fast. it was at its usual speed.
7:05 am
app lot of people were thrown out of their seat. next thing you know, we're plowing through something, probably the pillars over there. and when it came to a stop, i could see part of the roof two feet from me. i was actually at the end of the first car, between the first and second car. >> did you see a lot of injuries? were there peoplth >> yes. i even saw a woman who was thrown off, i think, and she was under part of the roof. people, probably seven or eight people, they tried to pick that piece up to get her out. i'm pretty sure she was badly wounded. >> so did it appear to you that most of the injured were on the
7:06 am
that train came barrelling in? >> so the place where the first car hit on the platform is usually a busy walkway because it's right next to the entrance. so i'm not sure if something happened to people over there, but the people in the first car were definitely -- there were a lot of injuries there. i saw a lot of people get out, but severa >> real quickly, the engineer, was there any loud speaker announcement to brace for impact? was there any warning whatsoever? >> no warning at all. no warning. >> what a terrifying morning for you and your fellow passengers. thank you for sharing your time with us and we wish you the best, sir. thank you. >> all right. nbc's tom costello joins us now with what he's learning about the crash and the investigation. tom, it's early. we don't know whether this is
7:07 am
or something else. >> no, that's absolutely right. the priority, as you would expect, is to not only evacuate everybody off of those trains, treat the injured, and try to preserve the evidence as fast as they can. but one concern automatically is that federal authorities are telling us that this line of track on the new jersey transit system does not have positive train control. that's the automatic braking system that will slow and stop a train if it is approaching an area that is either congested or there is a slow down speed limit or something on the tracks. this does not have it. you may recall in the case of chatworth, california, a number of years ago, 20-plus people were killed. that train did not have positive train control. the engineer was distracted. they since put positive train control on those train systems out in california. they have been working hard to put it on the entire northeast corridor, but not on this new
7:08 am
>> yeah, but tom, even without that technology, is there nothing in place on a track as it gets close to the end of a track that would slow a train if it was approaching too quickly? >> it is literally up to the engineer to do his or her job, abide by the speed limit signs, and hopefully abide by their training because they should know where they are at all times and know that track by heart. listen, here's the other thing. i used to travel that route every single day goi and that is usually a crawl into hoboken. it's not a fast train into hoboken. you're crawling the last stretch. so for this train to be moving that fast into the train station is a real puzzle this morning. i think among the many concerns people have is whether the engineer suffered some sort of a medical issue or was distracted or what happened because this train moved in there so fast. >> all right.
7:09 am
affiliate here in new york, now reporting one person has died, up to a hundred people injured. tom, thank you very much. >> tom, thanks. let's go to an employee, actually, of nbc and was also on that train. good morning. how are you doing? >> good morning. a little shaken up. >> where were you on the train? >> i was on the platform -- >> oh. >> -- walking. to a nightmare. the sounds of screeching and people yelling "run." thank god that person yelled run. i missed it by ten seconds. people were falling over each other. it felt like i was running for my life. i just ran as fast as i could, and when i looked back and saw injured people and blood and the
7:10 am
were at, people were running and falling. there was a man with a toddler over his shoulders and his wife walking in front of me. they fell as they ran. me and some other people helped them up to run out, and we got out of the building as we saw it was collapsing. we didn't know what was going on at that point. >> did you feel -- have a sense of how fast that train was going at the time of impact? >> not sure how fast it was going. normally the platform is really busy and the trains aren't usually going fast. you don't hear that screeching. the train was derailing down on people. people were running for their lives. it was just a lot of chaos going on. i'm just grateful somebody behind me yelled to run. i had my headphones on. going forward, i won't have my headphones on as i'm commuting, just to be aware of what's going
7:11 am
we thank you for joining us. >> thank you. >> thank you. >> the new jersey medical examiner now confirming at least one death in this accident. again, confirming between 75 and 100 people have been injured. we're going to have the latest throughout the morning. another big story we're following, the search for a motive in that elementary school shooting in south carolina. a teenager suspected of fatally shooting his father at home and then opening fire at the school where two students and a teacher were wounded. for us. gabe, good morning. >> reporter: good morning. overnight, the suspected gunman was questioned at length, and we're hearing incredible stories of heroism and survival. it was an unarmed volunteer firefighter who took the suspect down and teachers who prevented him from getting inside the building. this morning a desperate search for a motive after shots rang out at recess. >> townville school road, law
7:12 am
>> reporter: at townville elementary in south carolina, police say a 14-year-old opened fire, wounding two students and a teacher before an unarmed volunteer firefighter stepped in and tackled him. >> we got a gun on the playground. we're going to try to keep everyone away from here. >> reporter: first police say the teenager shot his father at a home two miles away, then at 1:44 p.m. they say he called his grandmother in tears. >> she could not make out what he was saying because he was crying and upset. >> reporter: a minute later, police say the young gunman had already given up to the school's parking lot, near the toward the school, and started shooting. the superintendent says one class was at recess. a teacher, megan holingsworth, was hit in the shoulder. she and other employees rushed students inside and locked the doors. >> courage. i mean, these teachers and staff members love those children. they put their lives on the line to protect them. >> reporter: this morning, 6-year-old jacob hull is in critical condition after being shot in the leg. the teacher and another student who were injured have been
7:13 am
>> what do investigators think is the motive here? >> we really don't have -- we don't have any information right now. >> reporter: this community shaken as terrified parents scrambled to pick up their kids. jamie meredith's daughter is in kindergarten. >> she just told me they went to the bathroom. i'm just so scared. i don't even want her to go to school now. >> reporter: police have not identified the 14-year-old suspect, only saying he's home schooled. right now it's unclear what his connection was to this school. rest of the week, and authorities are crediting active shooter drills they've practiced before with saving lives. matt and savannah? >> wow. gabe gutierrez, thank you very much. let us turn to politics now and the race for the white house with just 40 days to go until the election. hillary clinton will spend the afternoon in iowa, encouraging people there to cast their ballots as early voting begins in the hawkeye state. >> donald trump has a rally planned in new hampshire.

7:15 am
the debate about whether he paid federal taxes. >> they showed he didn't pay any federal income tax. >> that makes me smart. >> i think a lot of people say that's the kind of thinking that i want running this nation. >> reporter: still, multiple trump sources concede to nbc news that trump was unprepared monday night. one calling his performance a disaster, another insisting he's finally going to do mock debates and may even get professional coaching. trump himself remains unfazed, telling nbc ease katy tur, hard so well. clinton getting an assist from bernie sanders, courting young voters. >> it is imperative that we elect hillary clinton as our next president. >> the next 40 days will determine the next 40 years. >> reporter: clinton hoping to energize millennials who remain lukewarm about her. our latest poll showing her lead with millennials evaporating.
7:16 am
first lady offering this warning. >> the stakes are far too high to take that chance. too high. remember, it's not about voting for the perfect candidate. >> if you don't vote, that's a vote for trump. if you vote for a third-party candidate who's got no chance to win, that's a vote for trump. >> reporter: meantime, third-party candidate libertarian gary johnson in the spott a foreign leader he admires during a town hall on msnbc. >> who's your favorite foreign leader? >> who's my favorite -- >> just any one of the continents, any country. name one foreign leader you respect, look up to. anybody. >> mine was shimon peres. >> i'm talking about living. go ahead. you got to do this. anywhere, any continent. canada, mexico, europe, over there, asia, south america,

7:24 am
i took warfarin for over 15 years until i learned more about once-daily xarelto... a latest generation blood thinner. then i made the switch. xarelto? significantly lowers the risk of stroke in people with afib not caused by a heart valve problem. it has similar effectiveness to warfarin. warfarin interferes with vitamin k and at least six blood clotting factors. xarelto? is selective targeting one critical factor of your body's natural clotting function. in reducing the risk of stroke. like all blood thinners, don't stop taking xarelto without talking to your doctor, as this may increase your risk of a blood clot or stroke. while taking you may bruise more easily, and it may take longer for bleeding to stop. xarelto may increase your risk of bleeding if you take certain medicines. xarelto can cause serious, and in rare cases fatal bleeding. get help right away for unexpected bleeding, unusual bruising or tingling.
7:25 am
signs or symptoms. do not take xarelto if you have an artificial heart valve or abnormal bleeding. tell your doctor before all planned medical or dental procedures. before starting xarelto tell your doctor about any conditions, such as kidney, liver or bleeding problems. to help protect yourself from a stroke, ask your doctor about xarelto. there's more to know.

. >> dana: 7:26 on this thursday morning. hi, there. i'm dana wagner here on "news 3." and kelly curran, as we bring you in on the conversation, we had a fw sprinkles out there this morning. >> yeah, we sure did before the sun came up, we had showers moving from south the north in the pahrump area and the sheep range and showers making their way into mesquite and st. george. the temperatures as you head out the doors, lakes 71 and paradise, 72 and nellis, also 72 degrees. the temperatures this afternoon, actually pretty close to normal,
7:27 am
showers and thunderstorms, so i wouldn't wash the car just yet. sunny skies return for the weekend but also gusty winds. look at the winds bringing in much cooler air, we're talking a high of 73 on monday. >> that is a big difference. unfortunately, we have an issue in south valley on blue diamond and decatur, a problem for more than an hour with this westbound travel having to make this u-turn and most of the travel is in the eastbound lane so it could be worse but a tow truck it cleared. in the bowl, southbound 15 and the traffic from inbound 95 so it will be a little bit slow in the south when checking the travel times. it's medium level, sluggish southbound 15 and inbound 95 and you know henderson. >> dana: tom, i will enlist your help on this next story. the crash on 215 and decatur, it
7:28 am
this is in the eastbound direction, right, tom? >> the eastbound lanes at the same time there was unrelated work on the westbound lanes so, everything is open in both directionses? both directions. directionses? both directions. >> dana: thank you, tom. i think my strongest asset, maybe by far, is my temperament. i'd like to punch him in the face, i'll tell you. i would bomb the [bleep] out of 'em. i could stand in the middle of 5th avenue and shoot somebody and i wouldn't lose any voters, okay? to go [bleep] themselves. get him out of here! get him out of here! get the hell out of here! priorities usa action is responsible for the content of this advertising. priorities usa action is responsible follow your own sense of style... because, you want to be confident. t.j.maxx really helped us express our creative side. that's the best part. you don't know what you're going to find. i always find great deals on shoes... purses... we're a team. yeah.

horner: i was proud to stand for our country. i will not stand for congressman hardy and donald trump insulting seniors and veterans. hardy wants to raise the retirement age and said seniors who rely on programs like social security are a draw on government and the disabled are a drain on society. and then there's donald trump. they're just not for us.
7:30 am
this is an nbc news special report. here's matt lauer and savannah guthrie. >> it's 10:30 here on the east coast, 7:30 out west. this is an nbc news special report. unfolding right now in hoboken, new jersey. a new jersey transit train crashing into the terminal there. at least three people confirmed dead, more than 100 others injured. we're told that a number of them are critically injured. >> this of course happened at the height of rush hour earlier this morning. we're already seeing images of terrible destruction. witnesses are speaking out this morning and sharing stories of chaos and panic.
7:31 am
there wasn't enough space for everyone to get into the first car, so fortunately i was stuck in the middle. myself and about six other people were in between the cars. we approached the station, and the train just felt like it never stopped. it didn't slow down. it didn't -- it didn't brake. i mean, i don't know for sure if it didn't brake or what was happening. so as soon as the train just people started yelling. and the people that were standing in between on the other side, on the second -- in the second car, getting ready to come out of that door, were thrown on to our side. a young lady actually that was thrown from that, her legs caught between the doors just as soon as it was about to make that full stop. but we were able to pull her up fortunately, and the gentleman
7:32 am
people, but he had a gash in his forehead. he hadn't known he was bleeding. i didn't fall, fortunately, because there were people in front of me. >> you can hear the fear in her voice. one of the survivors. at least three dead, 100 injured in this train crash this morning. >> and that view from above gives you a really good idea of what this situation is. this isn't a through station. this is a terminal. these tracks come to an end at that specific point in hoboken. if a train comes in and does not stop, it goes off the end of the track, in this case right into the terminal building. >> while we're already hearing these differing accounts of how much, if any, the train had slowed, let's go to our correspondent rehema ellis, our correspondent. what are you hearing? >> good morning. we're standing in what police are calling a staging area. i can see the waiting room of the terminal where that train crashed into.
7:33 am
trying to secure this area in terms of getting the injured away from the area. as you've pointed out, witnesses, some of them, passengers on this train were able to walk away, others were not. i spoke to one woman in the third car of the train. she said it happened really fast. she said everybody in the third car was jolted. some people were standing because they were about to get off the train. and she said it was crazy. people were bleeding and shaking and crying. and she said she was able to brace herself because she was still sitting, so she put her hands on the backseat of the seat in front of her, and she was jolted in place. she was able to walk away from this. her concern, she said, is that so many other people may not have been able to walk away. the first thing she did when she got out of the car, she said she called her loved ones to let
7:34 am
grateful for the fact she was able to walk away from this, savannah. as she pointed out, so many others were not. we are still waiting for a press briefing here. we're told a short time from now, officials will give us more information on the extent of this accident. we don't know how fast the train was going, but we do know that it was approaching this terminal because this is the last stop, as matt was saying. this is where people are to get off. some of them were standing, and that made it even worse. this young woman said she felt that the people who were in the front car -- remember, she was in the third car. she felt that people in the front car may have taken the biggest of the burden in terms of the injuries. savannah? >> and there may have been people on the platform as well right there. rehema, thank you very much. >> tom costello going to look at the investigation side. obviously first they take care of the injured, then figure out
7:35 am
engineer survived the impact, would be to talk to that person. >> that's absolutely right. what was he or she doing? were they paying attention? what did they see? was the equipment operating normally? i got to tell you, i've ridden this train many times. i used to live in new jersey and took that train into manhattan. to come in that fast into hoboken station i find to be rather strange because normally you crawl into hoboken station. it's a very slow snail's pace. so why was this train traveling so fast that it literally rammed right into the station and caused such terrible structural damage and of course so many people injured and potentially killed. we do also know that this line on new jersey transit does not have that automatic braking system called positive train control. that's been a big issue, as you know, for the last dozen years or so following major train crashes, really, from california to new york. but on the new jersey transit
7:36 am
so clearly this will probably ramp up the discussion about whether that should have been in place. but you have to wonder, why would the engineer be realizing as he or she was coming into that station and having presumably done this many times before, that you've got to slow down. there are many warning signs and speed signs. >> and by the way, nobody on the platform that we've heard from -- we heard from a witness a second ago -- said there was any horn blaring or warning from >> as matt points out, the priority would be to speak to the engineer, if that is possible. also, these trains have what is referred to as a black box, don't they, tom? >> they absolutely do. on many of these trains -- now, i cannot speak to specifically what equipment was on this particular train. but many trains do have the equivalent of a black box that allow them to immediately know the speed, whether there were any brakes applied, what the speed was coming out or going into a turn, all of that is
7:37 am
important. >> all right. tom costello, as always, thank you very much. the ntsb has officially launched a go team to get to that scene. >> so once again, a chaotic scene in hoboken, new jersey, across the river from new york city. three dead, perhaps as many as a hundred injured. we'll return you to "today." keep watchin. this has been a special report.

it is 8:00 on the west coast on "today" we have new information in that breaking news out of hoboken, new jersey, a transit train barreling into the station during the busy morning commute hours. at least three p more than 100 others injured. officials just starting to counseled the toll there. and some eyewitnesses, several saying the train simply didn't slow down before it got to the end of the track. investigators are now going to try to find out why that happened. nbc's raheema is at the scene.
8:01 am
>> raheema can you hear me? >> reporter: i hear you now. i'm standing here -- can you hear me now, matt? >> yes, i can. go ahead. >> reporter: i'm just a few yards away from the terminal. just a few yards away from the terminal where the train crashed into the station. standing with me is tom, he was in the terminal at the time it came in. what did it sound like? >> a very loud crashing noise. you no he, i wasn service office asking for some information. i heard the crash, immediately ran out, saw that the train had gone through the terminal. >> dyspeople trying to get off the train. >> i saw folks running away from the train that were on the platform. there were folks trying to get out of the train through the windows, through the doors. >> reporter: were they injured? >> there were some injuries. >> reporter: can you describe the injuries? >> all types.
8:02 am
folks got off the train and they couldn't walk. you had very good response by the port authority people, the transit people, the police department. they were there very quickly to help. i myself tried to get folks into the seating area that were injured, that were struggling with what was going on. >> reporter: what was going through your head? what did you think had happened at that point that caused this crash? >> i don't know what had caused it. i obviously knew by looking at the train where the train wound up, it didn't belong there. it never stopped coming into the terminal. a portion of the terminal roof had collapsed down basically on top and next to the train. so it was definitely a bad accident that occurred. >> reporter: can you say how many people you saw trying to scramble off the train? >> i can't give any kind of number. it's one of the moments earp trying to help folks that were walking towards you who were
8:03 am
able to walk on their own, just helping until medical attention could get to them. >> reporter: thank you very much. i talked to a woman who was in the third car of the train. she had she was sitting with people who were standing at the time of the crash, and that some of them got jostled around in the train. she did not, because she was able to brake herself guess the back of the seat. she said service frightening. some people were crying, some people limping, trying to get off the train. the time and it will be a time she'll never forget. authorities are trying to assess. certainly the extent of all the damages. we're not certain if everyone has been taken out of the train yet, if everyone has been removed from the platform. we're waiting for authorities to come to this area, the press briefing area to give us information as to exactly what has happened here, and more information on how many people were on the platform, and how
8:04 am
about those who did not get off -- who did not make it off. matt? >> rehema, thank you so much. three dead, perhaps 100 injured. just across the river, it was crowded, a rush hour, a packed train we expect. we're just starting to learn about what may have caused that, and of course the big question at this hour, matt, is whether or t whether or not officials have been able to talk to him. >> tom costello is headed to the scene right now. you talked to us earlier and said you don't believe this section of track has the train control system technology. isn't there something called for lack of a better term, a dead man's pedal in the engineer's compartment, where if something happens medically to that person and that engineer becomes incapacitated, the foot and
8:05 am
it slows the train? >> absolutely. i think that addings to the mystery here. you're absolutely right. the engineer has to have his foot on the pedal, his weight on the dead man's switch or pedal, the idea being if he has a heart attack and falls over, then the weight shifts off the pedal and the train would come to a stop. however, if he slumps forward, it's possible he could till maintain the weight on the pedal. all the more reason why advocates say it's cti these trains day put in positive train control, and we know there was no positive train control on this particular stretch of new jersey transit. in fact, new jersey transit has to my knowledge not implemented it systemwide and they're a bit behind in trying to implement it. i would make this point. i have gone into that train -- >> sounds like we may have just lost tom costello. we'll try to get him back.
8:06 am
to speculate, but sounds more of a problem with the engineer. if it's a mechanical situation, you would think that the engineer would have at least a second or two to hit the horn, try to warn people on that platform and in the train through a loudspeaker announcement that something bad was about to happen. the person we heard from who was on the train said they didn't hear anything like that. nobody that we have talked to or heard from on the platform has mentioned anything about the >> plus it's a commuter train. one wouldn't expect it traveling at a high rate of speed and slamming on the brakes at the moment. presumably it will start a slowdown process. if there were some kind of problem, hopefully an engineer would have the chance to warn passengers, sound the horn, call for help. we just don't know what happened. >> you talk about speed. i was listening to our local affiliate interview a gentleman,
8:07 am
keep in mind they weigh enormous amounts. even 10, 15, 20 miles an hour, which when you think of trains traveling up the northeast corridor is not that fast, but with that weight, it takes a long time to slow that train down. if it were traveling 15 miles an hour and got to the track bumper at the end of the track, it would go right through that. there are reports that perhaps this train came to a rest 100 or so feet beyond that. >> that bumper probably doesn't envision the train traveling at a high rate of speed. it's early on in this investigation. we're going to continue to follow it as we mentioned. three dead, perhaps as many as 100 injured. we'll continue to cover there. we're back with a lot more of we're back with a lot more of today on a thursda people alwayy let's just get a sandwich or something. you don't just learn how to drive... or solve the world's problems...

it's really true. all these suspicion, why am i walking 20 miles. "wall street journal" confirms, at some airports, travelers are now walking more than a mile to catch a flight. in philly, you can even cross the county line. >> it's right on the line. >> most of the reason is bigger airplanes, they need more space. >> they need to sell more stuff. more stores. >> that is a big part of it. what they decided to do is have more space, better stores, >> i was in detroit last week. i love detroit. but i entered gate 21 i think. it must have been a half mile to the baggage claim. >> then you got to get on a train. >> and a lot of airplanes get rid of those people movers the moving walkways to put more stuff, more restaurants and stores and things. but i do like how you can get a pedicure at the airport if you have to. >> you can get a blowout in some place, they have hair salons.

8:20 am
radford in ellicott, maryland. what's the latest there? >> reporter: well, al, we're in the middle of a flash flood watch here in the baltimore and d.c. area. we're expecting to see up to five inches of rain in the next 24 hours. this is a part of a larger system that as you mentioned has hit north carolina and virginia. can you hear the emergency services crews here behind me at ellicott city, maryland. they're cleaning up, sandbagging, trying to prepare this city and prevent what happened twoon hundreds more rescued. that's when six inches of rain struck in two hours. that's why emergency services are here trying to keep these people safe as they hit the roads today, al. >> thank you. again, still reeling from that flooding. so this is going to be a very touch and go situation. of course, we will keep you posted during the day on msnbc and "nightly news" tonight.

8:23 am
it's wildly popular. that doesn't always mean that the book translates with el to the big screen. why do you think this one does? >> well, i think it does only because it was very faithfully adapted. the direction is fantastic and we were really mobbed up with a lot of very, very good actors. so you know, we can only hope we do service to the book and sort of honor what the author had in mind. >> without, i know there is a in terms of not spoiling something. give the basics of the story line in your opinion. >> essentially, the story about a woman named rachel who rides the train. she's in a slightly depressive state, drinking too much and she projects on to other people that she looks out the train window, what we all kind of do in life. she builds this sort of fantasy life around this couple and then
8:24 am
it lubricated in a way. >> i remember my dad drove through a particularly nice neighborhood one day, my dad said something to the effect, don't assume you know what's going on behind those beautifully painted doors. >> yeah. >> this is kind of that personified. >> it's that and i would go further on that, life as we take the train, the corridor a bunch. you are not only looking into people's windows sometimes, are you looking in the backs of their houses. >> that's right. >> it almost tells you more than the front. some people's literal dirty laundry is hanging out back. it's kind of grave, a beautiful sort of see other people's lives. >> you said you rely on your gut when are you choosing a role. does it usually serve you well? >> it has.
8:25 am
roles or projects to work on that don't, that someone has told me are smart to do or things that are good to do, i usually don't enjoy myself as much as when i find something that i just love doing. >> one of the things you seem to love doing the a show called "the leftovers." and the creator of that show said something about you i was reading. he says, he's a ken doll, but he's every ken, astronaut ken, interior designer ken, i'd be lying if i didn't say there's a part of me that wants to but in terms of what he can do as an actor, he can be much bigger than he is in terms of notoriety. the reason he's not is by design. it's his choice. is that true? >> i don't know if it's true. i, i think, you know, i've made decision again based on what is going to make me happy. so i never had any particularly, particular interest in doing things that will advance me to another level or do something,
8:26 am

buzzer. >> i like the high approach when you save for retirement, think of paying down debt at the same it can be done. first tamron with your debt, look at all of your debt. put the minimum on everything so you are not falling behind the debt with the highest interest rate put a little more so you get out of that quicker. if you need more help the national foundation for credit counseling is a great resource. as for retirement, make sure you are saving as little as possible, just $10 a day can amass hundreds of thousands we can invest on the mobile app, acorn, hook it up to a bank account or credit card, every account you spend round it up to the next dollar. put it in a diversified retirement portfolio for you on the go, automatically. >> i love that. have you 12 seconds. >> all right w. acorn, it's a diversified portfolio, 7,000 different assets. it caters to your age and risk tolerance.

9:25 am
